Astronomy Night | Zodiac Constellations
Name: Astronomy Night | Zodiac Constellations
Date: August 28, 2017
Time: 8:30 PM - 9:30 PM MDT
ACES invites you to Hallam Lake this summer to look up and learn about the night sky! Each evening starts with a 15-minute lesson covering basic astronomy concepts such as life-cycle of a star, reasons for meteor showers, Zodiac constellations, or how phases of the moon work. After the mini lecture we will gather outside for the stargazing portion of the evening. Aspen High School Astronomy Club member Ricky Wojcik or other local astronomy enthusiasts will be on-hand to guide you through the phenomena of the mountain night sky. ACES Astronomy Nights are bi-weekly gatherings throughout the summer to appreciate the spectacle of the night sky. Join us for one evening or all of them, as you will see and learn something different each time. RSVP required at aspennature.org - each evening is limited to 50 people. Mark you calendar for August 14th for the second annual Astronomy Night on Aspen Mountain, Stars Above Aspen! Presented by ACES and hosted by Aspen Skiing Company.
